What we’re about


  • Our meditation circle follows the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the prominent spiritual figures in the twentieth century and the pioneering father of Yoga in the West.
  • Paramahansa Yogananda founded Self-Realization Fellowship in 1920 to make available the universal teachings of Kriya Yoga, a sacred spiritual science originating millennia ago in India.
  • Visit our Website for information about our Meditation Circle, Paramahansa Yogananda, and Self-Realization Fellowship.


What meditation techniques do we practice?

  • We practice the yoga techniques of meditation, concentration, and energization taught by Paramahansa Yogananda – including Kriya Yoga, a spiritual science that leads to the direct experience of our inner divinity.

Do we teach Yogananda's meditation techniques during our meditation services?

  • Paramahansa Yogananda's meditation techniques are not reviewed during our meditation services. Step-by-step instructions in the techniques that he taught are given through the SRF Lessons.

Who can participate in our meditations?

  • You do not need any background in meditation to attend our services, although it is helpful to study the meditation techniques provided the SRF Lessons (see below).

Is there a charge for our meditation services?
